Rumor Mill

Merely a few weeks ago, Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime announced Diablo III beta will start on Q3 2011. While not set in stone, Diablo III might ship late 2011, but Blizzard doesn’t want to sacrifice quality so it might actually ship in 2012.

With this in mind, it’s intriguing to see a job opening for a Senior Quest Designer/Scripter at this point in time. Jay Wilson said to the New York Times the following: “We’re definitely in the home stretch. We’re crunching. This is when the magic happens.”

Sounded like the Diablo III single player was pretty much done. Or is it still in development? Otherwise … could this job opening mean the Creative Team is already jamming ideas for the Diablo III expansion?
